"They felt naked without a weapon" | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


"They felt naked without a weapon"

The Salon articles found that most of the soldiers were suffering the telltale symptoms of combat stress or post-traumatic stress disorder on their return from deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Instead of receiving proper care, however, these soldiers were ridiculed, discouraged from seeking care, misdiagnosed and given handfuls of medication and not much else for their symptoms. Others self-medicated with alcohol or drugs. Salon also found that some soldiers had troubled pasts and probably should never have been in the Army in the first place.
